Breakfast Tostadas
Print Recipe

One of my favorite under-10-minute breakfast recipes! This fast breakfast tostada is a delicious way to start the day and always a hit with Tex-Mex lovers! Don’t forget the egg on top and the hot sauce!


2 small corn tortillas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese
2 large eggs, fried
Fresh cilantro
Hot sauce


  1. Add oil to a small skillet over medium heat. Once shimmering hot, add a corn tortilla and as it puffs up from the heat, use a fork to poke some holes in the tortilla to flatten it out. Fry for 1-2 minutes per side until crispy. Remove tortilla and let drain on a tortilla while you fry the other one.
  2. When tortillas are done, crack in two eggs into the skillet. If the skillet is dry, add a fresh drizzle of oil. Fry the eggs for about 2 minutes, without flipping, until the whites are mostly set. Then cover the skillet and let steam for 30 seconds to set the whites but leave the yolk runny.
  3. To plate tortillas, smash half an avocado and spread on crispy tortillas. Sprinkle liberally with cotija cheese. Top each tortilla with eggs and garnish with fresh cilantro and hot sauce. Serve immediately!
